Freezing on Mac OSX Mavericks

Question

I successfully installed OS X Mavericks on my PC with an AMD FX 8350.  

 

Computer boots up fine and I can open and close programs, but a few minutes after booting, the computer freezes and I can't do anything.

 

Mouse freezes, keyboard doesn't work and I have to turn the computer off and turn it back on.

 

Any idea why it's doing this?

It's the computer. When I boot using the flag -x into safe mode, I don't have this problem. Not sure where to start when determining the issue of this.

Hi, same thing happens to me... I have a Pc with an AMD A8 5600k cpu, a Sapphire Radeon HD7770 videocard, 8 GB 1600 mhz ddr3, MSI Fm2-a75ma-e35 motherboard, two internal HHDs (one dedicated to Win, and the other to OS X).

 

I successfully installed OS X Mavericks, but a few seconds after booting my computer freezes and I can't do anything... What could it be? drivers? bios settings?

 

Another weird thing that happens is... in first (second, third...) boot when I do Apple configuration (name, passw, country, etc.), I must do that really fast or I won't be able to boot the system up, if I don't "run" really fast, my mouse arrow and my pc freezes up even during the configuration. What am I doing wrong?

 

Please Niresh, help us!!!

P.S.

bootflags I'm using are:

 

-v PCIRootUID=0 npci=0x3000 GraphicsEnabler=No

 

or

 

-f  GraphicsEnabler=No

 

(they works but when OS X loads, the system freezes up as I mentioned before)

I ended up booting into safe mode with the boot flag -x. Downloaded MultiBeast and installing the Null CPU Power Management Kext and it stopped freezing.

Hi again, in the end I solved everything using bootflag "amd" (without quotation marks) for starting installation.

 

And to start first boot (leaving my Niresh OS X Mavericks USB/DVD mounted) I used bootflag: "Kernel Cache"=amd 

 

And again, if the system won't start after Apple logo, you can try with bootflag: "Kernel Cache"=amd GraphicsEnabler=No

 

If you have two monitors connected to your graphic card(for ex. Radeon HD7xxx) , remember to disconnect HDMI monitor, and to leave connected DVi monitor only.

 

This procedure fixed everything in my case.

    • Hi, i tried to install high sierra on my hp computer, i created the partition on windows, i copied the sata-100-unssuported.kext to /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other but my intel SSD does not show up at the disk utility at all, my bios does not have options to change sata to ahci or any other option, and i read something about mbr patch which i dowloaded but there is no guide on what to do with it, any help would be really appreciated. Thanks
    • i tried this in last hours, but nothing. i tried to boot on an acer aspire (specs are almost the same) and it boots (stuck on logo but boot), i guess that problem is mine laptop?
    • Hi!
      As a first try with hackintosh I succesuffy installed High Sierra on a Dell PowerEdge T20. It works fine, but as I start scrolling in a web-browser the screen starts flickering. It only recognises my screen as a secondary projector, and can't change resolution from 1920x1080.
      How do I fix this?
    • I've downloaded the nvidia webdrivers but obviously nv_disable=1 disables them. I've tried booting with nv_drv=1 among other boot flags and the boot always hangs at the bluetoothhci starts completes line. Gfx is gfx 750ti cpu is amd phenom ii x4 965 deneb black edition. Motherboard is m4a88t -v evo/usb3 Couldn't edit to add this info, I installed using niresh mav 10.9 using boot flags dart=0 npci=0×2000 and nv_disable=1 as well as /amd64. I've successfully update to 10.9.5
    • To me it sounds as if he/she installed MacOS on their PC without understanding what they are doing, since they are asking to return to Windows 10.   My thought was, to allow them to start over with the installation, but with help from the thread.
